Sightings from San Francisco Whale Tours vessel Happy Days
On this trip we headed 11 miles offshore, out into the shipping lane. We were unable to locate any whales, but spotted some California sea lions resting on the shipping lane buoy.
On this trip we headed north first, then started west. Once we were over 12 miles from home we saw two minke whales. They each surfaced twice before they were gone again. SFWT photographer Joey got this shot of a minke before it disappeared. Find more of Joey's photos here.
The water was calm and flat on this trip.
